Kentucky Scholarships

Kentucky is often referred to as the Bluegrass State. The name comes from the color of the grass that owes its particular sheen to the robust and fertile soil. This fecund state is known for many things, including its distilleries, tobacco and horse racing. In short, what's not to love about Kentucky?

Something else the state is known for are its colleges. Kentucky maintains eight public universities. These include the University of Louisville and the University of Kentucky. There are more than 70 other private colleges and universities that help round out the states educational offerings.    

Both public and private scholarships are available for those studying in or living in Kentucky. The state also offers loan forgiveness and other forms of tuition assistance for those pursuing careers in under-served vocational areas. Among these are programs for both teachers and nurses. But scholarships can be found for a wide range of other academic fields, including business, the life sciences, architecture, resource management and information technology.
